“Beloved. The Head that once was crowned with thorns is crowned with Glory now.
The Savior who once knelt to wash His followers’ feet, is the same One before whom the enemy must now kneel in defeat.
The One who bore your sin and shame is now robed in Majesty from on High. This same shining Robe of Righteousness covers you, Dear One, for I delight in you.
I have crowned you with this very same Glory. You are adorned with the Radiance of perfect Love.
The fear that held you now must give way to Him who is your peace. The final Breath upon the cross is now alive in you, Dear One.
By My Spirit, you shall rise from the ashes of defeat. I AM the Resurrected King. In My name, you come alive and walk in victory.
I AM your Victory, Beloved. I wear The Victor’s crown. Every high thing must come down, every stronghold shall be broken in My Name.
It is FINISHED! I destroyed him who had the power of death. Fear not, Beloved. You are an overcomer by the Blood of the Lamb. The grave could not contain Me, Precious One!
You are more than a conqueror through Him who loves you. You are My delight and I AM crowning you with victory.”
“I delight greatly in the LORD; my soul rejoices in my God. For He has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of His righteousness, as a Bridegroom adorns His head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels,” Isaiah 61:10.
“For the LORD takes delight in His people; He crowns the humble with victory,” Psalm 149:4.
“But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, CROWNED WITH GLORY and HONOR; that He by the grace of God should taste death for every man. For it became Him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the Captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings,” Hebrews 2:9-10.
“Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, He also Himself likewise took part of the same; that through death He might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; and deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage. For verily He took not on Him the nature of angels; but He took on Him the seed of Abraham. Wherefore in all things it behoved Him to be made like unto His brethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful High Priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people. For in that He Himself has suffered being tempted, He is able to come to the aid of them that are tempted,” Hebrews 2:14-18.
